    The government will go on air live at 10 pm everyday to respond to allegations made by the People's Alliance for Democracy, Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej said Sunday.

    Speaking during his Talk Samak Style programme on NBT Channel, Samak said it would not be enough for his government to wait to respond to the PAD once a week because the PAD attacked the government everyday on around-the-clock basis.

    "They accused the government of struggling to amend the charter for our interest but this constitution is a trap. I am confident that I will be able to lead this ship through the problems. From now on, I'll respond to them everyday from tomorrow [Tuesday]. There were bill someone to go on air at 10 pm for one hour everyday to respond to them."

    Government Spokesman Wichianchote Sukchoterat said the programme would be moderated by the four government spokesman.

    He said the programme was aimed to provide the government's side information over the allegations made by the PAD.

    He said the prime minister or Cabinet members of permanent officials, who were attacked, would be invited to give explanations during the programme.

    He the spokesmen team would decide every morning on which issue the government would respond to the PAD.

    He said the title of the programme would be decided Tuesday.

    Deputy Government Spokesman Natthawut Saikua said Samak and the spokesmen team discussed the issue last week and agreed to launch the programme to respond to the opponents.

    Govt backs down over TV programme to counter criticism

    The government on Monday backed down from its threat to daily respond to allegations from the People's Alliance for Democracy citing technicality problem.

    However, the programme will be hosted by government supporters led by Veera Musikapong, a former executive of the now-defunct Thai Rak Thai Party, starting Monday night.

    Deputy government spokesman Nattawut Saikua on Monday said the government spokesman team would not operate a daily programme as such due to the contract Channel 11 had with a private company Digital Holding Media that currently runs the programme called "Kao Na Si" or "Page 4 News"

    After Nattawut's announcement, Suriyong Hunthasarn, caretaker director of Channel 11, said Digital Holding Media had informed him that the company would change the format and the name of the programme from "Kao Na Si" to "Chao Sanam luang" or "Sanam Luang People", to be hosted by Weera who has been spearing campaign against the PAD.
